California gained an embassy in Russia last weekend, at least in the eyes of those who have promised to seek a statewide vote on secession, nicknamed "Calexit," in 2018.


They know that's the fastest way to get a message to President Elect Trump.

Hahahaha! *__-
Witty, and rather true.

Your point being you have no sense of humor, I see. Thank you for informing me.

Oh you're a Californian, oh you won't be missed, but you wouldn't dare break away. You being California.

If you ever want to have an intelligent discussion about something, you'll have to do much better than that!
And leave the hate home.

One of the most wonderful, beautiful, unique states in the union, and you all would like to see it go.
You just can't handle opposition, can you? Or is it just plain ole Intolerance?

"Sad"

I guess when people are jealous they tend to let their emotions cloud their judgement. If they did their research they would understand they're upset mostly at the Bay Area and not the whole of California.

They are leaving due to no faith in Trump's lack of political experience among many reasons.

Who are they supporting to be president of California?

That face you make when the situation calls for armed rebellion but you gave all your guns away.

oh dear - another one who conveniently " forgets " that california is also utterly dependant on the other 47 states in the CONUS

oh dear, another one who knows nothing of CA economy.
Absolute nonsense!
We get back about $0.75 of every tax dollar we send fed-way! We'd do fine keeping it here.
Every good that we might need from somewhere in your country, we can do like any other county, buy it on eBay! *__-
We already have all we really need, and produce it ourselves.
Don't worry, we'll keep on feeding you (your country can import it) and selling you your cell-phone-tracking devices, etc... etc... etc....


You are forgetting something. IF Cali leaves they will have to drop the dollar. SO there goes the economy tanking for at least 10 years to set up a currency and banking system indepedent of the FDIC.
WHy dont you guys just ask Russia to Send help? Are their any ethnic russians in California?

We would still trade with them, undeniably they would be dependant on exporting to US more than anywhere else.

Please do it. Leave.

I'm going to answer once (you) for all the snide ignorant haters;

Just imagine everything that makes up your life that comes from or was invented in California!
Now imagine, if you could, not having any of it!
Florida? Enjoy your Chinese oranges!
The list is endless!
You would be hard pressed without us, out past your sneer...

Nothing like a little Perspective beyond the ends of your nasty reactionary hateful ignorant noses!




Some thing are worth learning how to live without.

Clearly.

Listen, I realize this was lost on most people, but what I was responding to was the general attitude of "California? We don't need no stinking California!"

In a different thread a couple of weeks ago, I encountered a poster who was making the argument that he wouldn't shed a tear if Hollywood was swallowed by a hole in the earth, which I initially took to be hyperbole, but which later proved to actually represent his attitude, never mind all the real human beings who would perish in such an event.

So, my point was that California does provide value to our Republic. And if they were suddenly a different nation, all the ways in which Cali is intertwined with our Republic (which both we and they take for granted) would be subject to all manner of negotiation which in today's environment simply does not exist.

That really was my only point.

My point was NOT really about oranges.

Look. If California actually did decide to tell the US to shove it. It might be good for them. They might actually be put in a position to realize the unreality of half their regulations and be forced to choose between economic viability or staring at their pretty, burning hills.

They won't.

Or they might go full-blown socialist and start letting the Russians stockpile nukes there. At the very least, they'd control the coastline, and would have their own immigration policies.

Who knows? It's a pointless hypothetical.

My point was that a couple of eggheads in California does not suddenly make a state worthless.

Oh no, my dear, NEVER 'seriously'!
In a make-believe world, 'serious' is just plain nuts! *__-

But, perhaps where there's smoke...?
